Welcome at Timberland Lodge. Life in a Gambian village!
Timberland Lodge is located in Darsilami, a village close to Brikama and on the other side the border to Senegal (Cassamance).
In Timberland you can be lodge and experience the real Gambian life, which is mostly spend outside. In a big traditional african round house there are rooms where you will find a comfortable bed and some basic furnitures. The showers and toilets are outside, when you are taking a shower at night you can enjoy watching the stars. Of course you want a bit of luxury so everything is nice, clean and there is running water, (which you can drink as well).
You will be served with delicious African food and sometimes a mix with European food.
In the morning you will wake up with a smile hearing the sound of birds coming to enjoy a bath or drink at the waterpools. In the season you can enjoy bananas, oranges, mangos and other fruit which is growing in our own garden.
Timberland is eco-friendly and a community based lodge. Everyone in the family is having a part in the lodge and even other people in the community are benefiting your stay here!
